Yes I am a newbie, both here and shooting in general. I shoot a Kimber Classic in 45 acp and I was wondering if there were any advantages to a bull barrel/bushingless setup as opposed to what I already have? Will the added mass of the bull barrel help the gun get on target quicker? I shoot 200 grain lswc reloads at a power factor of 173.
Thanks...

You could do a search on "bull barrels" as a topic of previous forum discussion. You can start your search at the upper right of this page.

The weight of a bull barrel delays the unlocking of the slide a fraction of a second. This can soften the rearward impact of the slide and soften felt recoil. It may reduce muzzle jump as well.

There's no bushing to break at the wrong time. The weight of the gun is more muzzle-heavy if you feel that's an advantage.

Hope you get all the info you need.
